NYFW Spring Nail Forecast: Metallics

I’m back from Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week and while the shows are still going… I’m back in the District sans blisters! I mean, it only took me five seasons to get ┬áit right…

Seen backstage at Nicholas K, Lela Rose, Erin by Erin Fetherston, Rebecca Taylor among others, I’ve got super shiny hues on my mind. Backstage at Lela Rose, Essie nail guru Anna Maria attests it’s easy to get the look at home but here’s her off-the-runway tip: prep the hands and nails. “Use a hand lotion to massage cuticles and make sure to prep the nails with a strong base coat for a smooth finish.”
